BitBrum is a not for profit, community inspired, grass-roots organised event. The sole aim of which is inform people about the technological, economic and societal impact of this nascent space and to equip people with the knowledge to avoid the scams and the tools and confidence to innovate.
In short we want everyone to benefit from Bitcoin. Not just the tech savvy or those that are already wealthy. High ticket prices are a barrier to participation for many and that is why we rely on sponsors. All sponsorship funds are spent on making the event better.
BitBrum 2017 cost just over £10,000 and sponsorship & exhibitor income amounted to c50% of the costs. In rank order costs were; venue & catering (43%), design/print/media/web (22%), AV (10%), speaker/MC/educator basic reimbursement (20%) , with the balance (5%) comprising event insurance, etc.
BitBrum 2017 attracted over 250 people, featured world renown speakers, offered balanced and objective educational workshops and a was held in a pretty cool venue – right in the heart of Birmingham.
The feedback from the principal sponsors & exhibitors was that the event was a huge success and represented great value in terms of promotion. For exhibitors we aim to keep the cost of participation as low as possible in order to encourage SMEs and start-ups to attend.
BitBrum 2017 relied on the hard work and generosity from people throughout the United Kingdom and many far beyond who believe in the community we share and are working for something that will benefit us all.
Our region has a fine industrial & commercial heritage and together we thrive and prosper on diversity. But take a walk around the streets or travel around the region and you’ll see there are many problems to solve. We believe that crypto-currencies (such as Bitcoin & ancillary ‘Blockchain’ technology) that offer; egalitarian friction-less commerce, decentralised security and permission-less innovation can be part of the solution.
